Each barrel of bacanora is handcrafted from 100% Agave Angustifolia pinas, harvested in Sierra de Sonora, Mexico, and distilled by Master Bacanorero, Manual "El Toro" Chacon, whose process infuses every drop with the sacred magic of three generations.
Did you Know? - The distillation of Bacanora was illegal until 1992, being bootlegged by vinateros for many generations. Since 2000 Bacanora has been issued with an origin denomination bill by the Mexican government. This means that only mezcal produced by the agave variety grown in the Sonora municipalities can legally be called Bacanora.
Legend has it - That’s how the Jesuit missionaries referred to it back in the summer of 1756 when the Opata Indians offered it up as a healing remedy. It didn’t take long for the Jesuits to praise the benefits of a daily dose. The legend says that they broke their bread with it religiously, certain that each and every agave plant is a gift from God.
